Uh, tennisbum and I "turned a blind eye to" nothing
in either case, which (as regards the one in India) seemed to drive you nuts.
Neither of us would ignore the contributing "cultural factors".... with more detail from me, ala sex selection abortion, and sometimes its "post-birth cousin", female infanticide.
Sure the PC thing is to only call rape a crime of violence and power, but it IS also about sexual gratification; so the "young female shortage" the above have created in large parts of India contribute to
the rape stats. Those who refuse 2B silent about these "all too common" things are better friends of potential rape victims there than UR.
tennisbum and I have clear "post trails" here of bashing those elements of American culture that lead to things like school shootings and a host of other social ills. As debopero correctly noted, this should not
be turned into a US vs. India thread. Many
countries have serious ills, that others can
criticize without being "haters".
